Beadwork, stringing, bead embroidery—any and all are fair game in this class where we’ll stretch our imagination with new work and have the comfort of using familiar techniques in new ways. Our class theme this year is working with unusual elements. You will be expected to come to class with ideas for projects, UFOs that need a fresh approach, or ones you would like to tackle but need a little help getting started. Diane will have samples and ideas to offer as well. Through daily discussions and individual instruction, you can pursue your own style while learning options for color and design.
Beads and beadwork are Diane Fitzgerald’s means of creative expression, a passion that she loves to share with others through writing and teaching. She has written 11 books and more than 100 magazine articles during her 20+ year career in the fiber arts. Diane’s love of travel has included South Africa, to study Zulu and Xhosa beadwork, and Europe and Japan to learn more about the glass bead industry, meeting fellow beaders everywhere she goes. www.dianefitzgerald.comNo tags for this post.
